Korri is the kind of kid who just needs to feel special (don't they all?!?!). She needs undivided attention but when does she get that? Not often. She had Grandma all to herself ALL weekend and I'm pretty sure it was heaven on Earth for her. I'm thinking Grandma might have needed a big nap Sunday afternoon after Korri left, though! (although Mom did say it was easier to just have one at a time!)
They made a strategy for Saturday on Friday night. Korri lined up the sprinkles on the counter so they'd be ready for the cookies. Then she got to do something she's NEVER got to do at Grandma's house...play with the toys ALL BY HERSELF and not have to share! Big deal to a 4 year old who normally has to play with boys when at Grandma's house (since she is the only girl!). Saturday they BAKED! And Mom let her do a lot of it, which she LOVES. They made sprinkle (i.e. sugar) cookies, apple crisp and pumpkin muffins! They read lots of books while waiting for the cookies. Then painted nails and did Korri's hair! And Grandma got her a new dress, which she got to wear to church on Sunday morning. I'm sure I didn't even hear about everything, but it sounds pretty darn good to me.
Nothing makes me happier than when other people make my kids feel special. Mom definitely accomplished that this weekend. Thank you so much, Mom. You really are the best and we are so fortunate that we get to have you for a mom and grandma!
Here are some pics of the epic girl's weekend:
